“Entourage” Junket Supports Godin’s Ego Theory

In a scene where Vince walks out of an interview with the editor of a popular website, his manager, Eric, tries to smooth things over.

ENTOURAGE:

Eric: You don’t think Vince would make a good Aquaman?

Blogger: I did this morning.

Eric: And you don’t feel like you have a responsibility to tell the truth?

Blogger: Eric, I started this site out of my parents site for two reasons. To get laid. And to make a little money neither of which are coming true. No, my report goes out on the web tomorrow monring, and it’s followed by another one every week until the movie opens. I have one goal in my life right now. Drown Aquaman.

Granted it’s make believe, but you got to admit it rings true. IMHO, the exchange supports Godin’s notion that people, journalists included, are motivated by primarily by their egos.

It also reinforces my belief that audiences are more media savvy than ever before. They are more suspicious about bias and understand that while objectivity may be a goal, it is never fully attainable.
